Training Survey 2014

We ask that all Alabama agencies respond to this survey on training.  The purpose of this initial survey is to establish a baseline for Alabama, so that the Standards and Training Committee can begin putting together the outline of a plan to accomplish and establish training levels and standards within the State.  We desire that everyone have buy-in to this program by offering your input in this survey, which will serve as a starting point for the committee to explore existing programs within each agency.
